Kanye West 2020

*Apparently he’s still running.

With just 22 days left before Election Day, Kanye West has released his first presidential campaign ad.

West shared the roughly one minute long video on Monday afternoon in a tweet to his nearly 40 million followers. In the video, he discusses how Americans should focus on strengthening their religion and faith to improve the country.

“America. What is America’s destiny? What is best for our nation? Our people? What is just? True justice? We have to think about all these things together as a people. To contemplate our future, to live up to our dream, we must have vision. We as a people will revive our nation’s commitment to faith, to what our constitution calls the free exercise of religion, including, of course, prayer,” he said. “Through prayer, faith can be restored.”

West spoke against the backdrop of a black-and-white American flag and footage of families, including photos of West’s own family when he was a young boy.

“We as a people are called to a greater purpose than ourselves. We are not only a beacon to our world, but we should be servants to each other to encourage each other, to help each other, to lift up each other — our fellow Americans — that we may all prosper together. We have to act on faith with a sure knowledge that we are pursuing the right goals and doing the right things. We will build a stronger country by building stronger families,” he said. “Families are the building blocks of society, of a nation. By turning to faith, we will be the kind of nation — the kind of people — God intends us to be.”

The video ends with an “I am Kanye West and I approve this message” endorsement and text urging people to write him in on the ballot.

Watch below:

While the rapper has struggled to get on states’ ballots as he missed several crucial deadlines, he appears on the California ballot, though as a vice presidential candidate.

Barack Obama Blasts Jared Kushner’s Comments on Black Success in America [VIDEO]

Published

*Barack Obama has reacted to Jared Kushner’s recent comments suggesting Black Americans need to want to be successful to benefit from Trump’s policies. 

Kushner made the remarks on “Fox & Friends” on Monday, claiming the president can help the Black community “break out of the problems that they’re complaining about, but he can’t want them to be successful more than they want to be successful.” 

Critics noted that Kushner’s comments highlight his white privilege.

“[Trump] loves to talk about Black unemployment, ‘look how low Black unemployment’ — well, you know what, unemployment was really high when I came in and we brought that unemployment low and it kept on going low,” Obama said Tuesday during a campaign rally in Orlando, Florida, in support of Joe Biden. “And he wants to take credit for it, says he’s the best president for Black folks since Abe Lincoln. Man.”

“Now his advisers are out there saying, including his son-in-law. His son-in-law says Black folks have to want to be successful, that’s the problem,” Obama added. “Who are these folks? What history books do they read?”

“Jared Kushner is the face of white privilege and nepotism,” Rep. Barbara Lee, from California, tweeted. “He doesn’t want to change our racist, broken system because he benefits from it. He’s the last person that should be lecturing the Black community on the value of ‘hard work.’ “

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany called it “disgusting to see internet trolls taking Senior Advisor Jared Kushner out of context as they try to distract from President Trump’s undeniable record of accomplishment for the Black community,” she said in a statement. 

“From criminal justice reform and record HBCU funding to record low Black unemployment and record high income increases, there is simply no disputing that President Trump accomplished what Democrats merely talked about,” she said.

Tucker Carlson says he has no idea what happened to the “damning” Hunter Biden documents on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” – Oct. 28, 2020 (Fox News Channel)

*For months, Fox News host Tucker Carlson and others in the right wing media have claimed to have unearthed deep corruption by the Biden family, including incriminating documents supposedly on Hunter Biden’s laptop left in a Delaware computer shop that was turned over to Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer.

Time reported that emails and photos from Biden’s laptop were being shopped around Kiev last fall by someone looking to “sell it to Republican allies of President Trump.” Days later, Politico reported that the material was being shopped around by a “Ukrainian oligarch looking for help with a potential legal jam” as early as spring of 2019.

Earlier this week, the star witness for Fox News and Trump, Tony Bobulinski, claimed he only came forward because he was outraged that no one was paying attention to the New York Post story that first reported of Biden’s hacked emails. But Ben Smith of the New York Times reported that Bobulinski was working with Trump’s campaign to pitch the story to the Wall Street Journal, before they settled for giving it to the New York Post.

Which brings us to Wednesday’s episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Carlson said that “his team” had acquired the “damning” documents from Biden’s laptop. But he can’t expose them because they “vanished.”

You can’t make this stuff up. Carlson said that his team used a “mail service” to send the docs from Washington to Los Angeles, and they just disappeared. His team neglected to make any backup copies.

Watch below as he hilariously tries to paint the sudden “disappearance” of documents designed to take down Joe Biden as some kind of organized heist out of a bad movie.
